          Working on mine too, it will be fired up this weekend. First time since 1976! It might be on some yard dog exhaust, but I’m sure it will fire up and run. Can’t wait!

              I will, and I certainly will video the startup. Its voice hasn’t been heard in a long, long time!

                Although not a B-body, this was my first installment of an engine & transmission from underneath; circa 1982 or 1983.

                        I need to start working on something
                        I just can't remember what :poke:

                        I hope Summit Racing is still shipping

                        I need some quality tune up stuff,
                        distributor cap, rotor, low ohm rest. plug-wires

                        thinking of going to a different coil
                        & Pertronix Digital Ignition box, pnx-512 $216.97 Summit Racing
                        probably in black not silver
                        Pertronix Ignition Box pnx-512 $216.97 Summit Racing.jpg

                        ditching the ol' MP chrome box & blaster coil
                        been down the MSD rout on many occasions too,
                        want to try something else, this looks intriguing
                        FBO site rates them pretty well

                        anyone ever use it ?
                        if so what'd you think about it ?

                        Actually, it wasn't really.That was back in the day of working in my parent's garage. We had two identical sears floor jacks with a 6" block of wood on top positioned at the intersection of the frame rails and transmission crossmember. This was a 3-man job. Once the car was up high enough, and the engine was underneath, two of us would be lowering the floor jacks evenly while the 3rd was in front guiding us to make sure that it was lowering evenly left and right. It worked out quite well back then, but today, my lift takes the place of the floor jacks.

                          I'm trying to find rear drum brake assemblies for my projects. I put a wanted ad here but didn't get many responses. I almost had one deal but I didn't like the price.
                          With so many rear disc brake kits out there, I just thought that there would be all sorts of people willing to sell their drum brakes they removed.
